Roberley Bell created a sculpture, consisting of an open trellis in the shape of two gourds with attached gates. This new artwork flourishes in the new Costa Lopez Taylor Park, She used steel rods to create an open trellis allowing flora to intertwine with the art and further connect the park with the artwork. Bell’s work, which consists of several site-specific works, plays on and with nature, highlighting the relationship between the man-made and the natural landscape.
